My five oldest children are grown and out there in the world and I pray daily that they treat people with respect and kindess. I pray that they engage in simple decency and concern for other's welfare. If I have succeeded in this, I don't care if they become doctors or lawyers or indian chiefs. I will feel that they have become the people who I raised them to be.
If, at the end of my life, I can look back and know that I have walked along side of people and not tried to run out ahead of them and obliterate them to get to the finish line, then I will be at peace with who I have been.
